  • ONDBEAT: 90th birthday party planning a hot summer challenge

    Takata airbags, you suck bad and dangerous air.

    As a sometime investigative reporter, I was oblivious when Dave, my favorite Low Country car salesman, rang up last week to convey both bad and good news.

    The bad news, which came first, involved the latest rampant airbag recall on certain vehicular models, including mine. It’s going to take a good three, four, six or more months for them to be replaced.

    The good news is he could help steer me in a different direction with rebates on top of rebates plus brand new payments on other wheels.
